Introduction: The aim of this study is to investigate the role of perceived organizational support in the relationship between career plateau and organizational citizenship behavior and organizational commitment.
Method: The statistical population included all the staff and physicians of police hospitals in Tehran. After estimating the sample with simple random sampling method, 180 questionnaires were distributed and 152 were collected. The research has an applied purpose and descriptive (non-experimental) data collection design and is considered a field study and also in terms of the relationship between research variables, has a correlational design. Structural equation modeling is used to analyze the data.
Results: The results of this research show an inverse relationship between career plateau and organizational citizenship behavior and commitment. Career plateau was also approved as an effective factor in reducing staff commitment in police hospitals. On the other hand, the results of this study indicate the existence of a relationship between perceived support by the organization with career plateau. This means that by creating organizational support, staff in hospitals will suffer less from career plateau.
